A lead contender in the upcoming Mew Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary primaries in the Akwatia Constituency Party,Nana Obeng-Danquah aka Daakye, has said the constituency is crying for a strong voice to represent the people to champion their development needs.
The formidable aspirant-hopeful told the media after filing his nomination that he was most qualified to offer that effective representation for the constituency to get its share of the national cake.
He opined that Akwatia has nothing worth writing home about by way of infrastructure developments and projects even under an NPP led government largely because its immediate political representative has not lived up to expectation.
“As a journalist, I seek to offer effective representation to advocate for infrastructure projects,I have the skills and ability to market the Akwatia Constituency,” he stated.
Obeng- Danquah,who is seen as the unifier, reiterated that without unity within the constituency as far as NPP was concerned, it will be difficult to recapture the Akwatia seat from the opposition National Democratic Congress.
According to him, unity is key if NPP wants to recapture the seat, and entreated the party people at all levels to listen to what is happening on the ground.
Akwatia NPP constituency is sharply divided along two factions which started from the conduct of the 2020 parliamentary primaries.
The aspirant appealed to the delegates to vote wisely and not to repeat the past mistake, and assured them that they would be considered first in all opportunities that would be available.
“Let us unite to break the eight, let us win together,” he said.
